In the age of steroids and PEDs, why not take a look back at athletes who excelled on the field and did nothing more than drink excessively off of it.

The link contains story after story of some of sports' biggest lushes, who also happened to be great players. Guys like Paul Hornung, Kenny Stabler, Jim Bouton and lots of others are in here. My only problem is that Wade Boggs isn't on this list, since legend has it he once drank 60 beers on a cross country flight.
